    I would have also mentioned that the pigeon build is not omnivorous, but granivorous, so due to lack of proper nutrition (besides the normal dangers of the city meta) it is almos impossible, even for experienced players, to get to high levels.

    I'm a huge fan of corvid players, but it doesn't seem to be mutual. I try to trade with them often if I have something I think they want, don't even want anything in return, but even then they only accept trades 50% of the time? Which is sad, wish they would add me to their friends list, but oh well...

    One tip for all players in the city biome try to avoid the PETA clan. They’re a clan of humans with a lower intelligence stat and believe that they’re fixing the game. They’re not and they should be avoided at all costs

    Yeah, and a claim that's been going around human players is that the PETA clan sometimes kills players outside of their species, such as dog, cat, lizard, and rabbit players. And in video, a dog player has been grieved by the PETA clan, as they took it from its human masters' territory, and put it down.

    Usually all of the high ranked players play in Australia or Africa so it's expected that players use pretty niche or high lethality builds.

    although pigeons abilities are mediocre,they have thrived in city meta,their numbers are greater than any other city species (except humans which we dont count them now,and rats) , that would be enough to put them into s tier.Also? Where are the cockroaches? its one of the most unique builds in the game, high mobility ,zero intelligence but ultimate instict ,high diversity skills like climbing ,flying up to 20 meters ,the ability to inflitrate humans houses without noticing,the ability to eat almost everything and to reproduce at high numbers,they are probably the best stealthers of the game and they have the ability to cause panic at humans while most of the other creatures dont their only 2 weaknesses are the low hp especially if you hit them with a human slipper,and the fact that they are weaker in 1v1 with everything but they compensate with that due to their super stealth.Cockroaches definetily deserves a place in the tier list,and probably in s tier!

    Honestly the code of the human build is very buggy, in fact most of the time it's the buggy code that makes the build the most overpowered, but in worse cases also the most vulnerable. Like for example the code, due to the newly implemented varying in stats that come with the civility update, tend to put their young in danger in various different ways like for example sometimes due to the varying levels of the intellect stat in the human build, sometimes the intellegence goes down to zero after the juivinile stage, which causes them to be unable to give their offspring the "Vaccine" buff, which lasts for about a year, is rechargeable, and protects the offspring from poison damage caused by virus builds. Hope they fix this in the new patch, because honestly im about to change my play style over this because even though it's not that common, it's common enough to the point where it ends up triggering the "Outbreak" event.
